Hello everyone! 

On May 25, the Living World Seasons free giveaway campaign starts. In this regard, the players of free accounts have a question: will the seasons be unlocked on free accounts? Let's say I started playing during the promotional weeks, and in July I buy a game. Will I have the seasons of the Living World unlocked for free? Or in order to open them, I need to buy the game before the start of the promotion?

 

Since they havent said anything, I can only assume it works like normal living story unlocks and that work on free accounts yes.

Yes and depends. Meaning - yes, f2p accounts can unlock for free current LS episodes (as well as any additional episodes offered for unlock for logging in) - there has already been one such campaign before, so it's 99% certain to work this way again. On the other hand, to actually play such unlocked episode, you may need to buy an expansion. LS3 areas are considered to be part of Heart of Thorns, so you need that expansion to play them. Similar with LS4 and Path of Fire. LS5 also requires PoF. LS2 however does not require any expansion, and, as such, can be played by an f2p account after getting unlocked.

(Season 1 is no longer accessible to anyone, though, as it was a time-limited event)

Thank you for the balance update of the 11th of May patch. 

I am very unhappy to experience toxicity on all game modes due to the current Meta builds, there is no escape from the toxicity that the current Meta is enabling right now, especially in PvE modes where a big chunk of the GW2 players are obsessed with a limited amount of builds they see as Meta on websites like Snowcrows or LN. I don't like to see Meta builds as a requirement to play a game mode because it's not inclusive and it's not fair on players who play certain professions or specializations that are currently not performing as well as the current Meta.

Joining different guilds doesn't solve this issue, it's a thing that has been going on for too long and I would be very happy to see constant changes on profession balance in order to discourage players from limiting squad slots being exclusively reserved to few Meta builds that significantly outperform the rest like power Chrono. Raiders often confuse speed clear with raid clear, I am sure the shift of constant balance will be healthy for the game.

 

There will always be Meta-builds because there will always be (some) builds that work the best (for specific situations).
